Re: Topic about spam

Thomas can you tell Is IT bot or "human"? Is this THING register from same IP?
Maybe change registration code to confirm it through email or/and add captcha to writing posts?

Re: Topic about spam

I think it's a bot. I get a lot of similar posts each day and the IP adresses of the users are different so I can't ban the IP. I've installed many anti-SPAM scripts and somehow this bot seems to bypass it. (FYI: the anti-spam script has blocked 1130 bot registrations in the last 11 days!)

Change captcha plugin to more difficult to bypass? I don't have experience with this kind of problem but it becomes a problem in your forum  neutral.
